The Old Voss Steam Railway Museum

  • Garnes Stasjon, Tunesveien 8, Bergen
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Travel back in time with the Old Voss Steam Railway. Ride behind a classic ten-wheeler steam locomotive, in lovingly restored heritage teak coaches.

Travel back in time with the Old Voss Steam Railway Museum this summer. Experience first-hand the golden age of rail travel onboard heritage teak coaches from the 20s and 30s, pulled by our beautifully restored ten-wheeler steam locomotive from 1913. Departure is every Sunday from mid-June to mid-September, steaming between Garnes station and Midttun station outside Bergen.

The line opened in 1883 and in the beginning, it served as a narrow gauge line between Bergen and Voss. It was upgraded to standard gauge with the completion of Bergensbanen to Oslo. It served until 1964 when the new Ulriken tunnel opened, resulted in the closure of the line. Along the line, you can witness the line’s engineering and architectural heritage and soak in the beauty of the nature that the line passes.

Get ready for a departure back in time to the golden age of rail travel. The smell of burnt coal, teak varnish and steam wafting through the air, the conductor in his pressed uniform sounding his whistle and signalling the driver a green flag, the doors slamming shut and the deep hoot of the steam engine letting everybody know she is ready to depart, letting out massive clouds of steam as she is off towards the horizon. Take a seat, relax and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere onboard our train and the picturesque landscape rolling by your window. A truly unique not-to-be-missed experience.  

What’s on

Enjoy a Sunday lunch onboard our train in our classing dining car from 1937. The car has been lovingly restored by volunteers and is the last dining car still in regular traffic in Norway. Experience a bygone era, with pressed tablecloths, white porcelain, waiters and great service. Bring your family or friends for lunch, have a romantic lunch for two or just by yourself. With us, you will find a nice atmosphere and good dining experiences in the dining car suiting every occasion.

We offer a lot of fun for the whole family during the summer. It is exciting for the children to see the big steam engine, with all its bells, whistles, huffing and puffing.

Can you help the detective to solve the mystery and find the thief?

At the end of the season, we bring out all the bells and whistles for our grand finale – our “Stordriftsdag”.
